With the completion of the nucleotide sequences of several complex eukaryotic genomes, tens of thousands of genes have been predicted. However, this information has to be correlated with the functions of those genes to enhance our understanding of biology and to improve human health care. The Drosophila transposon P-element-induced mutations are very useful(More)
The passive relationship between arterial blood pressure (ABP) and cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV) has been expressed by a single parameter [cerebrovascular resistance (CVR)] or, alternatively, by a two-parameter model, comprising a resistance element [resistance-area product (RAP)] and a critical closing pressure (CrCP). We tested the hypothesis that(More)
Cognitive and/or sensorimotor stimulations of the brain induce increases in cerebral blood flow that are usually associated with increased metabolic demand. We tested the hypothesis that changes in arterial blood pressure (ABP) and arterial Pco(2) also take place during brain activation protocols designed to induce hemispheric lateralization, leading to a(More)
Dynamic cerebral autoregulation (CA) describes the transient response of cerebral blood flow (CBF) to rapid changes in arterial blood pressure (ABP). We tested the hypothesis that the efficiency of dynamic CA is increased by brain activation paradigms designed to induce hemispheric lateralization. CBF velocity [CBFV; bilateral, middle cerebral artery(More)
The utility of the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS), the most widely used anatomic scale for rating severity of injuries, and its derivative for assessing the combined effect of multiple injuries, the Injury Severity Score (ISS), were tested for their ability to predict functional disability at time of discharge from the hospital and 6 months after discharge.(More)
This paper describes the employment experience of 266 individuals one year after traumatic injury severe enough to require hospitalization. Of those working full-time prior to their injury, 56 per cent were employed full-time at one year; an additional 5 per cent were working part-time. Those sustaining a severe head or spinal cord injury were at highest(More)
This study was designed to delineate the factors that influence the extent and rate of recovery as related to the characteristics and duration of functional limitations resulting from trauma. The study population was 597 surviving trauma patients aged 16-45 years from two trauma centers in a single state system which follow similar care protocols, and(More)
This document is presented as part of the I3P Consortium's work under the Process Control System (PCS) Security project, and deals with Cross-Domain Information Sharing (CDIS) for the Oil & Gas industry. Named as one of the nation's critical infrastructures by presidential directive, the Oil & Gas community includes Owners of assets such as refineries,(More)
